InactiveCommunity Project Funds: Community Foundation Webinar Series

There are no upcoming dates for this event.

A local service organization comes to you and would like to collaborate on a much needed community project.  A group of concerned citizens decides an animal shelter is needed.  A dedicated person wants to raise money to pay them to deliver services to seniors your community.  They all want to set up a pass-through fund with to handle charitable contributions.  We’ve all been there.  When should you do this?  What are the legal responsibilities for the community foundation when these types of funds are established?  How do you handle the financial side?

This session will include:

  • Guidelines for assessing when to engage in this type of activity
  • Understanding community projects vs. fiscal sponsorship vs. fiscal agency
  • Sample fiscal sponsorship agreements and reporting requirements
